About Harmonized System codes and international trade

International trade in goods is classified using the World Customs Organization’s (WCO’s) Harmonized Description and Coding System (HS). The HS classifies all products using 6-digit codes that are organized by chapter (2 digits), heading (4 digits) and subheading (6 digits). HS codes are harmonized internationally up to the 6-digit level.

WCO members use the HS as the basis for their tariff schedules and export codes, typically adding digits to the HS 6-digit subheading for additional precision in their national classification. By finding the HS code that applies to the good, you can find the applicable tariff rate.
